LIAPG is pleased to offer our next webinar on Thursday, August 11, 2022 at 7pm, a companion webinar to our upcoming canoe/kayak trip along the Nissequogue River! While best enjoyed for those that will also be on the August 21st field trip, this webinar is available to all and is approved for 1 New York State PDH credit.
Abstract: The Streams of Long Island presentation will compare and contrast the four main types of streams on Long Island (normal, tunnel valley, outwash channel, and glacial dry valley) and the geological processes that created them, compare and contrast the impact of groundwater extraction on streams, ponds, and lakes in Nassau vs. Suffolk counties, and explain the ecological impacts of development on Long Island streams.
